    Welcome from northern Virginia. What you did with the lights is so cool looking. How do they get their power?

    They plug in. Was going to get real creative with with wiring, but if the lights have issues I didn't want to have to undo a bunch to remove them! They work off of a remote so they can be turned off and on that way

    Looks great. Do you plug it in inside the camper Or do you just plug it in at a power post at your campsite? I was looking at doing something under the awning on my roof so I can see when I cook, but just couldn't figure out a pleasing way to plug the lights in without getting the plug wet if it rains.

    They plug in. Was going to get real creative with wiring but if they go out or have issues didn't want to have to undo a bunch of stuff. They operate with a remote, so plug them in and use the remote for on/off and change colors!

    Had all the same concerns. Going to plug in to post and just bag the connection under the box so will be out of sight!

    The plug getting wet isn't a big deal. I run my pool filter off an extension cord and it is out in the open. Never had an issue.

    Looks nice, however a little to much for me, I prefer it quite a bit darker (my opinion)

    What lights did you use? How did you fasten them to the pup?

    The strips have what appears to be very good tape already attached. Also used the plastic claps with the screws. Did not use a while lot of the clips because I didn't want to make a bunch of holes. Screws are shirt and small! Screenshot_20181104-200117.png Screenshot_20181104-200117.png

    Looks nice. But I would use a darker color, worried about maybe attracting bugs.
